Well this would be pretty easy to do I think.  We can expose a special
operation on the AuthorizationService
query this information by pulling up the entry in question and calculating
the set of ACIItem Tuples on it.

These tuples contain the elements needed.  Then we could write the ASN for
the ext request and have a ext
req handler that queries this info for the target entry.  The handler will
then translate the set of aci tuples
into the format of this string.

Sound viable?
